British Computer Society The British Computer Society is a professional body and a learned society that represents those working in Information Technology both in the United Kingdom and internationally. Established in 1957, in 2009 it rebranded as BCS — The Chartered Institute for IT, although this has not been reflected in a legal name change.[1] Overview[edit] With a worldwide membership of over 82,000 members in over 100 countries, BCS is a registered charity and was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1984.

The 6 hottest new jobs in IT When CompTIA conducted an intensive examination of the IT employment market last year, it uncovered demand for jobs whose titles would have been meaningless only a year or two ago: augmented reality designer, Internet of things architect, container developers. That’s no surprise, given that the IT job market is in constant flux, with new technologies emerging so quickly that hiring managers struggle to define those positions -- let alone give them a title. IBM, for example, has a director of blockchains, and Ford Motor is among many companies looking for GPU cluster engineers. Surely, some emerging fields will falter. At the same time, traditional IT jobs are morphing, requiring new abilities, says Tim Herbert, senior vice president and researcher at CompTIA. Among the technologies that could fuel a new IT career revolution are IBM’s Watson and similar cognitive computing initiatives. Haller’s point reflects the growth of what CEO Bob Melk calls “the skills gap.” Interested?

Where To Find the (Tech) Jobs — Don’t Panic, Just Hire Where To Find the (Tech) Jobs I recently made the decision to switch jobs after 8 years in the same (great) organization. When I started looking, however, it became clear that a lot had changed since I’d last switched jobs. One thing was immediately (anecdotally) apparent: the market is lot more competitive. Friends and former colleagues shared stories about fierce competition — many made it to final interview rounds only to be turned away at the end. It can also be hard to know where to look. But, speak to enough candidates, and it becomes clear that many jobs get offered to people without ever being posted, either to internal candidates or promising candidates interviewing for similar roles. So, in addition to speaking with everyone I knew to identify interesting roles, I found a few great resources to focus the search. This list is in no way exhaustive. In the end, I found my latest job the old-fashioned way: through LinkedIn.

A Great JavaScript Side Project is your Most Important Asset Dan Abramov completely changed his life with just 99 lines of code when he created Redux. Ryan Dahl changed programming history by introducing the world to NodeJS. The two stories have a few general things in common: Both are JavaScript related.Both were created by talented and motivated individuals.No one asked them to do it. The two side projects, one big and one small, initially were just ideas two people thought were cool. Both developers took their ideas one step further. There’s more to both stories, I’ll elaborate in a few moments. StackOverflow Says We Love Our Side Projects The average developer spends more than 7 hours per week coding on the side. This is just one of the facts uncovered by this year’s StackOverflow annual survey. The fact that 91.7% of us have active side projects is astounding. StackOverflow end of 2015 survey We all of love to code. Our love of code doesn’t explain these numbers. I know this to be true, because I felt it. A Learning Experience Alt? “Any fool can know.

SEN Teacher Home Page :: SEN Teacher :: Free Teaching Resources A Primer for Startups and Job Seekers to BOTH Win the Talent War | First Round Review Tammy Han sees the tech ecosystem from a very unique vantage point. She spends nearly every waking hour (including those when she really should be sleeping), working with startup founders looking to hire and candidates looking — or in most cases not, actually — to get hired. Her role on First Round’s Talent Team is to make matches between great talent and the right companies in a market that can only be described as red hot. “One of the findings in First Round’s recent State of Startups report was that hiring the right people tops the list of founder concerns,” says Tammy. In this exclusive interview, Tammy walks through the three non-obvious yet massively influential challenges shaping the recruiting landscape. “The frothy fundraising climate isn't limited to those providing capital or receiving it — its symptoms have spilled into the general population as well,” says Tammy. What Job Candidates Should Do Instead 1. But this strategy is often counterproductive when evaluating startups.
